B Boys - Dudu
Big up to the Brooklyn trio B Boys who release their second full-length LP Dudu today on Captured Tracks. A few of our partner shops have a handful of copies left so get digging around as our eighteenth Dinked Edition is real fine. Hand numbered at just 300 copies on 180g gold vinyl.
New York’s B Boys (Andrew Kerr, Brendon Avalos, Britton Walker) find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterized by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting. Recorded by Gabe Wax (Deerhunter, Ought, Crumb) at Outlier Inn, and mixed by Andy Chugg (Pill, Pop. 1280, Bambara)
Also in the press;
”On the album’s 15 tracks, the band throw their strengths and weaknesses at the wall and see what sticks, oscillating between full-blown Jackson Pollock style chaos and the more carefully calibrated, geometric works of Mark Rothko. Sometimes it’s revelatory; sometimes it’ll leave you scratching your head.” - Paste Magazine
“Dudu is a welcome gesture of support from kindred souls. Consumed in moderate doses, it raises the spirits.” - Consequence of Sound
